Prescott Valley Police Department seeking volunteers



The Prescott Valley Police Department continually seeks enthusiastic volunteers to join the department as it strives to serve the community. Volunteers will receive valuable training and insight concerning the functions of the police department and the criminal justice system.

The department is always looking for assistance in the patrol section to assist officers on the street in a variety of assignments. These assignments are available for any hours volunteers can provide, including evenings and weekends. For the patrol volunteers in policing, or VIPs, duties may range from directing traffic, motorist assists, and street closures to speed-trailer deployment and much more.

The department also is looking for volunteers to work in the records unit assisting with answering phones, window service, filing and other customer-service tasks. This assignment is needed for the daily hours of Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The department recognizes it would be unable to provide some of its enhanced services if it were not for its volunteers. In addition, volunteers assist officers and professional staff by allowing them to concentrate on their assigned tasks, thus contributing toward making Prescott Valley a safer place to live and work.

Becoming a volunteer with the PVPD is very similar to applying for a job — it requires completion of an application, an oral interview and a background check. The background check includes fingerprinting and a criminal history inquiry. Here are some of opportunities available: administrative aide (office support, shuttling equipment, etc.), citizen police patrol/motorist assistance, investigative aide, range assistant and records aide.
